The drive through giveaway will take place at 12 noon at the South Econ Recreation Center.
No appointments are needed and pet food is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings says the goal is to give some extra support to pet owners affected by COVID-19.
“We want to keep pet owners and their pets together. In keeping with proper COVID-19 social distancing protocols this is a drive through event.”
The food distribution is organized by Orange County Animal Services and is open to Orange County residents only.
Back in June, OCAS held a similar event and distributed more than 700 bags of pet food.
